Event Description

Learn the art of plotting geographical data and charts with Google Docs

Are you tired of trying to make your data comprehensible using a bar or line chart? Are you sick of plotting moving data on a static chart or geographical data on something that doesn't even begin to resemble a map? To help your data become more prominent, you would want to display it on a chart that makes sense for that data. Google Docs charts can do wonders for you. Google Docs charts go beyond simple bar and line charts and quickly encompasses motion charts that move swiftly with time, use maps for plotting geographic data, create charts that are sortable tables and organization charts too. These charts are based on data stored in a worksheet, which was created either in Google Docs or software such as Microsoft Excel. If you use Google Docs on Google Drive, you won't have to buy expensive software to showcase your data. The charts are easy to learn and can be published in a myriad of ways, including being embedded in a website.

In this practical presentation, Helen Bradley will work through real world examples of the kind that you might do every day. Her emphasis will be on everyday tasks and real life outcomes, such as the need to present information to meet corporate specifications, and to share data in multiple ways - print and online. The examples are designed to give you an insight on how you might use these charts and techniques in your work.
